Press Release (ePRNews.com) - JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jun 30, 2017 - – The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kickoff event will be held Aug. 22 at Jacksonville’s Museum of Science & History, and will unite the community with a shared determination to finish the fight against breast cancer.
Kickoff is a great opportunity to learn about important resources, and gather with fellow teammates for fun as we gear up for this year’s walk. It is also a great networking event, as there will be several community leaders in attendance.
Join MSABCJax from 6 to 8 p.m. to register for the main event in October, learn about fundraising opportunities, participate in a silent auction*, meet Action News Jax’s Dawn Lopez, learn about the American Cancer Society’s mission, and visit MOSH’s planetarium and brand-new dinosaur exhibit.
Every dollar raised plays a critical role in savings lives, so this year MSABCJax is providing all registered teams with the opportunity to jump-start fundraising efforts by submitting items for a silent auction. Any funds raised from these item(s) will be credited towards the team’s page to help meet, and beat, fundraising goals.
